Disney has just announced that two fan-favorite restaurants will return to buffet-style service for the first time since their 2020 reopenings.

Biergarten, located in EPCOT’s Germany pavilion, will transition away from family-style service and back to buffet service beginning August 29th. All of your Oktoberfest favorites will again be offered on the buffet, including my favorites: the pretzel rolls and the apple strudel. Yes, please!
